KENNEWICK, Wash – According to the Centers for Disease Control, the best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to this virus.

When thinking of things to do with your children — a playground may not be the best idea.

Despite the White House’s recommendations of avoiding groups of 10 or more, dozens of families with young children disregarded the suggestion and visited the Playground of Dreams in Kennewick this week.

According to the CDC, the virus can be spread by touching a surface or object that has the virus on it.
